Sir Mark Elder is the music director of Manchester’s famous Hallé Orchestra. The British conductor has also held important roles with the English National Opera (ENO), BBC Symphony Orchestra and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
The Britten Sinfonia is one of the country’s finest chamber orchestras. It is based mainly at Cambridge, but has regular seasons at the Southbank Centre and Wigmore Hall. The orchestra does not have a principal conductor, but chooses instead to work with a selection of guest musicians.
